  1. Hello all from the Northwest Angle! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year! We are fishing in full force up here now and it has been a good first week! We are filling limits of walleyes with some saugers mixed in. Slot fish have not been shy either, and we have had multiple 20-25" fish being caught every day. On the Minnesota side, we are fishing in 19-25 feet and the best has been anything tipped with a minnow head being jigged most of the time. Of course, you still want to be using that dead stick, as that has produced fish also. Best colors have been
  2. The wind blew enough to take the lake out of play yesterday so Mike Lindholm and I went back to the Rainy River and with a great tip from Paul Johnson at River Bends Resort we got into some really nice fish. Very nice way to beat the NW winds that howl in the fall. Check it out right here.
  3. Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort Lake of the Woods, NW Angle 10/24/16 Flag Island Resort is still OPEN! We will be open until the ice is in so, if you can get here we would be happy to have you! Fishing and hunting is great this time of year, it is our personal favorite! On the Minnesota side, the Walleye bite has been good, some successful spots have been around Soldier’s Point and Brush Island. Jigging with a minnow has been the tactic of choice in 8-20 feet.

  4. Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort, Lake of the Woods NW Angle 10/17/16 On the Minnesota side fishing in 12-24 feet of water around Soldiers Point, NW Point, Brush Island and Mergan’s Point has been good. Points are where the fish are at! We have found that there are a lot of shinners in bays. Jigs tipped with a minnow still are the tactic of choice. The water temp is around 49 degrees. Many kinds of ducks are here and the hunting is still continuing to get better. On the Ontario side the Crappie bite is still on! The first run of emerald shinners was great and the next wave
  5. https://youtu.be/Vk3WvIS1GN8 In the fall the windy days increase and when the wind blows it blows harder and LOTW can get real churned up. That's not great news but once the wind stops the water cleans up in a hurry and the fish really want to bite. Last week had some real wind that kept fishers on shore for a couple of days but when the winds stops find some cleanish water and the fish are going nuts. On this new NCOR video I will give you some of the spots to look for that clean up quick and fill with biting fish after the wind settles down. Enjoy it and have a great OCT!

Here in the Angle, summer has come to an end as the water temps are slowly cooling. The days are getting shorter and the nights are starting to get that first chill of Fall in the air. Soon the leaves on the trees will start to show their vibrant colors and the geese will begin migrating South.

  16. 8/15/16 Flag Island Resort Fishing Report, Lake of the Woods NW Angle On the Minnesota side, fishing in 12-24 feet of water with orange and hammered gold spinners with crawlers or minnows has been producing fish.

But, this is the Northwest Angle, and great fishing is always available as long as anglers can adjust and adapt t
  22. This past week we have seen plenty of storms, rain and heat but, that has not stopped fishermen and women from getting fish in their live wells.

On the Ontario side pulling spinners with crawlers has been successful with the orange gold and pink colors due to fish feeding on crayfish. The depth has been between 24 and 27 feet in mud and on the breaks off of the
